Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

  1. Thanks for finding and posting these, the article about hunger was particulary interesting. I haven't really rediscovered my hunger cues yet but this gives good advice.

    1. :) Hunger cues come back over time and with regular eating it helps!

  2. The stopping worrying article was also very good. I would recommend that anyone prone to worrying follows these practical tips as they really do work. This mirrors the work I did in the early days of my depression and it certainly helped me.

  3. Hi Izzy,
    I have a few questions for you if you don't mind. How did your family react when you started eating more plant based? I feel that I want to try going more plant based as well, I have recovered from anarexia quite well, I just don't want my mom to think that i'm restricting my diet. Like you said in the two videos you made earlier about your transition into being plant based, not eating animals is a 'choice' not a restriction. I just don't feel like I want to have an animal be killed just so I can eat.

    I'm just trying to find ways to show my parents that eating this way is safe and I would be willing to go in for blood tests and even make charts of what I ate to show them I am getting what I need and the amount I need. The struggle also is that my dad likes to hunt and fish and my mom is afraid that I won't be able to experience good food if I go plant based. I may have to wait a few more years until I'm in college to transition but then i'm afraid i'll lose connection with them and they won't understand. Any advice.

    1. I'm not Izzy but may be able to help.
      Just show them that their worries aren't necessary. Eat a variety of foods so that they see there's a lot you can eat and maybe even do fancy meals just so they know you don't have to live off "rice and broccoli". Most of all let them see that you can be happy on a plant based diet because if you ate in wrong proportions and was unhealthy, they would probably see it straight away. Also try showing them videos and articles to educate them :)

    2. I've answered this in a post this morning which i hope helps :)

  4. Thank you i'll try these tips
